We’ve got less than four months to go before Keanu Reeves returns as the title character in John Wick: Chapter 2. In that time, we expect to see much more in the way of marketing for the action-packed sequel to writer Derek Kolstad and director Chad Stahelski‘s thriller about the titular former hitman. But today, courtesy of Lionsgate, we have a look at the supporting cast set to assist or antagonize John Wick.

These new images feature Ruby Rose as the mute Ares, Laurence Fishburne as The Bowery King (who has a fondness for pigeons, it seems), and Riccardo Scarmarcio (Burnt) as Santino D’Antonio. We’ve seen these characters (briefly) in action in the recently released trailer, but these still images give a good sense of their style, something that’s in no short supply in John Wick: Chapter 2.

The film also stars John Leguizamo, Lance Reddick, Bridget Moynahan, Ian McShaneCommon, and Peter StormareJohn Wick: Chapter 2 opens in theaters on February 10, 2017.  Click here for our recap of the film’s New York Comic-Con panel.

Here’s the official synopsis for John Wick: Chapter 2:

Keanu Reeves returns in the sequel to the 2014 hit as legendary hitman John Wick who is forced to back out of retirement by a former associate plotting to seize control of a shadowy international assassins’ guild. Bound by a blood oath to help him, John travels to Rome where he squares off against some of the world’s deadliest killers. Lionsgate’s “John Wick: Chapter 2” arriving in theaters on February 10, 2017.
